Last year, Gazetteer-Novel selected two natural villages (Xu’aodi in Zhejiang, Tankou in Anhui) and four urban communities (the town of Qiyun in Anhui, Oversea Chinese Village in Quanzhou, Shapowei in Xiamen, and the town of Xinzao in Guangzhou) for a-week-long writing residencies. Before meeting the audience, the text is displayed as its object in this temporary (also eternal in a kind) library. The object of the text suspends the reference to any given region and is re-catalogued in the library without any summative experience and typical feeling of misplacement, behind which, the significance of geographical or human memory disappears at this moment. The identities of the six southern villages (or towns) are folded to the back of the visible text, which is not presented as a marvel or a surprise, but the author’s daily life as a traveler in somewhere else .


In the library, the curator will return to be a librarian with a feather duster – a ceremonial caretaker (in a sense, the character returns to the initial transition between care and cure). Explore endlessly along the seemingly inelegant hexagonal symmetry, dust off the text and try to “measure” the distance between the author and the resident place:Did he (or she) go inside? Or is he (or she) still outside the door? Perhaps the librarian can ask herself this question, and this feeling of “far or close” will be involved in the path of the exhibition. Of course, the distance here is not the physical distance in the objective sense, nor does it have the ranking of good or bad


Infinite hexagonal galleries


Start from the whispering monologue mingled with buzzing – they are looking for an unknown woman. Put on gloves to carefully read the ancient archives, but accidentally fall into the shadow of black and white negative films. Because of the lonely force, slid into another wonderland in dizzy, yes Wonderland, where will wake up every 60 seconds and return to the worldly and desire. But the soul flutters off and becomes the one who is watching oneself – explore endlessly along the seemingly inelegant hexagonal symmetry, dust off the text, barely recognize that the image was a untouchable coincidence in geographically, but in myths and legends there might be evidence to follow. At this moment (a hypothetical opening moment), the shore “flotilla” leading the soul to join or return, find out a woman’s name in the flashing images. Three miles away, the night keeper turns on the delayed light.



This infinite hexagon may not appear at all, if you enter or watch from any conventional route. As Dunraven said, “Think about the universe.” 

Or the reverse.
